Bukayo Saka was Arsenal’s winner again and Patrick Bamford endured a nightmare as the Premier League leaders took a dramatic 1-0 victory over Leeds United.
The Gunners were poised for a typically spirited start from Leeds but the game was suspended less than two minutes into play as the power outage affected Hawkeye and communication between referee Chris Kavanagh and VAR.

Arsenal capitalized on their luck to win a seventh successive win in all competitions, with Bamford coming on as a substitute at half-time not scoring a goal or converting a penalty.
Leeds were then awarded another penalty in stoppage time and Gabriel Magalhaes was shown a red card for kicking at Bamford, but referee Cavanagh overturned his decision after a VAR check as the striker pushed the Brazilian defender, who instead received a penalty. yellow card – before he pounced.
